Seattle, Washington

You really can't get much farther north and west and still be in the Continental United States... but you probably won't find a friendlier or nicer place  to visit or to call home either.  Professional sports venues, great coffee, excellent and numerous dining opportunities that meld with theater, arts and clean air in a city that prides itself on its "greenness".

You'll enjoy the freshest of seafood (like salmon, oysters and crab to name a few), convenient public transportation, very helpful residents who are proud to call Seattle home, and a whole lot more!  Rain?  Well, it doesn't rain any more in Seattle -- annual rainfall is about 37 inches -- then in numerous other cities across the country, and no one really seems to mind anyway.  It's more like liquid sunshine...  Here is a city filled with vibrancy and vitality that simply sings out to stop by for a taste of the good life!
